Hausner Hard-Chrome has its roots in Germany, where Hans Hausner developed and operated one of the largest Hard Chrome Plating plants from the 30's to the end of World War II. After the war, he immigrated to the United States with his family, where he and his son Wolfgang started in the business again with a small plant in Chicago. Upon Hans' retirement and the closure of the plant, Wolfgang founded Hausner Hard-Chrome in Elk Grove Village in the late 60's. That plant has since grown into one of the largest hard chrome facilities in the United States, with two plants employing over 100 people. Wolfgang's two sons, David and Jeff, who are now helping to run the business are third generation platers. It is our goal to make HHC into the most modern, successful, and environmentally safe operation in the 21st Century.
